Last Minute Luncheon


The inspiration for this table was a hankering for pizza! I decided at 9:30 Thursday night that I wanted pizza for lunch so text my friend, Marlys to come join us for lunch yesterday...nothing like waiting until the last minute! The menu was homemade pepperoni pizza, a green salad and chocolate cupcakes filled with peanutbutter cream, from Betty Crocker!

I opened the armoire and the first thing I saw was the black and white checked table cloth so I grabbed that and some black napkins.


After looking through the dishes I settled on the yellow cabbage ones, with black plates as chargers.


The flatware is Oxford Hall in bright yellow.


The glassware is Longerberger that I found at the thrift store.


I added a sunny bouquet of yellow daisies.



Nosy Mr. AJ wanted to see what I was doing while taking pictures. He follows me like a puppy!

Thanks for visiting today...do come back to enjoy the green on March 12, 2014, to follow along on Cuisine Kathleen's 6th Annual Saint Patrick's Day Blog Crawl.

And I’m in the middle of a beautiful home that creates a beautiful living! I adored how the exquisite and attractive dishes field the table. I feel like I’m going to visit to a home with yellow sunshine. Classy!

Your cat is so cute, Marigene! :) I love the cheerful colors of your table! Those yellow cabbage dishes are wonderful. Your yellow dishes and daisy mums really pop against the black and white tablecloth and black chargers. A perfect setting for homemade pizza. Your menu has made me so hungry this morning, Marigene. :-D

Great luncheon tablescape -- I'm glad you shared with us. Have a great day!

Hugs,

Denise
